Weddings are my favourite event to work at. Family members look like one another, and they all know each other so well they love how I bring the real characters out from behind their fabulous fascinators & fancy floral boutonnières.

 

They all tend to run a bit late, but every wedding is unique. After having sketched at over a thousand of them over twenty years, this is how I often work ~

After the ceremony (if there has been one) I start sketching during drinks - at this point the bride & groom are often away busy with photos, and I can help prevent a "lull" occurring.

 

I lend a fun factor to the wedding breakfast by sketching table-to-table, handing the results out as I circulate. The guests love it - it can get tables roaring with laughter when they otherwise might have nothing but the mundane pleasure of eating, while stuck sat next to someone boring :P

If there are speeches I tend to take a break, but sometimes I can discretely do particularly candid sketches. Once the "formalities" are over and the atmosphere becomes jolly I'm in high demand as guests realise they can get a good laugh out of me.

The wedding couple can have theirs done at any convenient point for them, and I can also ensure certain family members/guests of their choice get theirs done, or concentrate on the top table - just point me in the right direction.
